MICRO|MACRO + COLOUR + REFLECTIONS
Grafton Street, Dublin – Retail
Peter Mark’s flagship salon located on Grafton Street Premier Dublin’s shopping street redefines luxury Salon. Open for business for over 50 years this salon is one of Ireland’s best known and loved salons, so it was only fitting that it was given the greatest makeover of any salon in the history of the company.
The concept was based on reinventing luxury through colour and texture. The textures and shapes evolved from the concept of the “micro and macro” of the world. A microscopic view of a butterfly wing enlarged to create abstract floor to ceiling graphics, maps of cities around the world viewed from unrecognisable distances that create elegant organic patterns on feature light boxes. Colour was introduced in a subtle and surprising manner; green mirror reflections trick the eye and cause the onlooker to ponder the source of the accent. Specialist colour change glass almost travels with you as it shifts tone, creating eloquent fleeting changes, as you move through the space. All of these elements are contained within a beautifully detailed envelope filled with marble desks, graceful glazed styling stations, bronze glass chandeliers, surreal floating panels and bespoke sculptured 3 D walls.
74 Grafton Street has become the jewel in the crown for Peter Mark who with an extensive portfolio of beautifully design salons has become synonymous with amazing interior architecture throughout Ireland.
